Officers Are Chosen and Charter is
Ready But Has Not Been
b, Delivered.
A meeting of the Knights of Co:
lumbus of Nauvoo, was held at that
place Sunday, presided over by the
district deputy, J. Dave Wall of Bur
lington. The meeting was arranged
for the special purvose of comvleting
the preliminaries for the institution of
a council. Officers were elected as
follows: Grand knight. L. V. Datin
deputy grand knight, P. J. Kimball
chancellor, Ray Schaefer recorder,
William Argast financial secretary,
Charles Ritter advocate, James Og
den warden, George Hemmy Inner
guard, Louis Meier outer guard,
Hilery Herbert trustees, Ll C. Schae
fer, William Yeargen and ESsworth
Hadef. The organization is to be
known as Alleman council. Knights
of Columbus, of Nauvoo, 111. The
charter has been granted but has
not yet been received by the council.
The Institution and installation cere
monies will be held af a meeting
scheduled for Sunday, October 22.
Hie council has a charter member
ship of fifty-five. Nauvoo had a
chapter for a long time. A chapter
is simply a local organization of
members of the order. Chapters are
organized in towns and villages not
having enough members for councils.
They have no representation in the
supreme council. The Nauvoo knights
have long wanted a council and have
finally succeeded in getting enough'
members to apply for a charter.
Everything is now practically ready
for the institution. Supreme, state
and local officers will probably attend.

Ducks Can be 8hot From Aeroplane
is Assistant Attorney General
of Iowa Finds.
Is it legal to hunt ducks in an
aeroplane in Iowa? Henry E. Samp
son, assistant attorney general, says
that he finds nothing in the Iowa
law to prohibit aviators, while in
machines, from shooting game.
Duck hunting in aeroplane may
never become very popular in Iowa,
but it has been taken up in a number
of other states. Aviators say that it
provides good sport, as the element
of chase Is involved. The aviator
must outmaneuver the birds in their
flight before he can get a shot at
them. Securing the ducks after they
have been shot presents another prob
lem for the hunter-aviator.
Since July 1 the date on which all
old hunters' licenses expired In Iowa,
there have been 31.89S new hunters'
licenses issued in this state accord
ing to the report of the county audi
tors to the treasurer of state.
This Is about one-third of the
Otunber. of hunters who were licensed
to hunt last year. As each hunter
contributes $1.00 to the fish and game
fund when he secures his license, the
fish and game fund is generally well
Thei law permits the shooting of
ducks after September 1, and quail
may be hunted after November 1.
Beaver, mink, otter and muskrat are
prohibited until December 1.

Cedar Falls Record: A few years
ago it was freely predicted that the
automobile would drain the country
of its money. It was argued that the
bank deposits would be depleted and
that actual ruin would stare us in the
face. In contradiction to this predic
tion Iowa banks carry larger de
posits than ever. A Cedar Falls bank,
in a recent statement, shows deposits
on hand of a million dollars, the
largest amount in the history of that
institution. The spending of money
does not destroy it. It gives it wings
